    And I actually had the figure in my Aliexpress cart for a few days already debating whether or not to buy it. Oh well. I wasn’t going to use him for the thirteen myself anyway, just thought he looked cool. Leaning toward TLK voyager Megatron as my Leige Maximo. Just need to figure out his horns.

    Alchemist is one of the ones I haven’t figured out. I’m not all that familiar with him. Going off of tfwiki I’m inclined to want a figure for him that has a stocky build and maybe includes facial hair. There just aren’t a lot of options out there for that.

    I was thinking about one of the Prime Thundertron mold, but he’s too slender. Come to think of it, I do have the Botcon Cybertrons Most Wanted Megatron that might fit his body type and color actually. I should go take a look at him again and see if that might not work.

    One of the Prime Bulkheads might work too, come to think of it, if you pretend his big chin is a beard. lol Actually I kind of like that idea. Bulkhead’s stock face does have a lighter expression similar to how Alchemist is depicted in the pics on TFwiki.

    I dunno why, but since I recently acquired TLK Hound I was thinking about repurposing AOE as Alchemist. From that I started to think about other primes to repurpose from the movie lines and thought of TLK Megatron as Liege Maximo (as some have suggested before), AOE Galvatron o SS Megatron as Megatronus, Evasion Prime as maybe Prima o Vector Prime, Infernocus or T30 Centuritron as Nexus, and SS Thundercracker as Quintus or Amalgamous.

    Other I have thought about areAIE Voyager Grimlock as Onyx, Classics Ultra Magnus as Prima (white knight theme) and Botcon Oilmaster (can take "any form"/multiple forms).

    Of the few movie figures I like and own, mostly being Cybertronian Decepticons, I’ve already repurposed the majority of them as various Japanese TF villains. So I don’t have many options there.

    Definitely think I’ll stick with TLK Megatron as Liege Maximo. I like the idea of Protoform Optimus as Prima. I have both the original and the recent TLK redeco. Just wish he were larger though.

    Anyway I think I have my Primes mostly figured out with the exception of Quintus and whoever I decide to make the 13th. I might look into Alpha Quintesson for Quintus, but I’m not 100% sold on that.

    Here’s what I going with so far, with a some additional Primes thrown in:

    Prima - Alternity Convoy/Movie Protoform Optimus

    Alpha Trion - 3P Titanium Saints

    Vector Prime - Takara Galaxy Force Vector Prime

    Solus Prime - Beast Hunters Arcee

    Micronus Prime - Galaxy Force Safeguard

    Nexus Prime - Collector Club Nexus Prime

    Onyx Prime - Renderform Red Geist (Brave series reuse of Deszaras) from TF Go! Budora

    Alchemist Prime - Prime Bulkhead

    Logos Prime - Jia Qi AoTianQiong - Original - SirToys.com

    Liege Maximo - TLK Megatron

    Megatronus - Jia Qi YuDunShou - Original - SirToys.com


    Quintus Prime - ?

    Actually I may drop Optimus and include
    Amalgamous Prime with bonus Septimus Prime. Don’t know what to do with those though.

    In my head canon I consider amalgamous and logos to be the same since amalgamous was the progenitor of shifters and logos was said to be able to take any form, but that’s just me personally

    For me they seem too different, including the nature of their shapeshifting, to consider the same character. Of course one could be taken as being an ealier incarnation of the other who chooses a new identity to fit the changes in personality and powers. There is also Logos Prime’s desire to find a successor to his power to consider I guess.

    Still, I’d hate to have a perfectly servicble name go to unused or set aside, so it’s preferible for me to have them be different entities.

    I might look into a triple changer or maybe some version of Sixshot for my Amalgamous.

    Fair enough. In that case, if I could offer a suggestion for amalgamous, rid01 galvatron/car robots Devil gigatron mainly because he’s a 10 changer

    Really like that idea. Especially since there are additional fan modes for that mold. Thanks!

    Yea, I may end up using it for amalgamous as well instead of soundblaster haha I figure the galvatron colors look more heroic

    Damn, thats a great idea!!! And I was thinking about Oiomaster, the Double Pretender since he has three diferent bodies so he "takes any form".

    I had considered using her for my Solus Prime. She’s a nice voyager sized figure but barely has any usable articulation. Her hands also need to be modified to hold 5mm weapons if you want to give her one of then 3P hammers out there or a hammer from Prime Magnus. The fact that she can hold any weapons in her hands at all definitely does give her one up over FE Prime Arcee though.

    So I just placed an order for RID Galvatron/CR Devil Gigatron. When I saw how much they were going for, even incomplete, I almost decided to not bother with him. Then I saw there was an eBay coupon today so I nabbed one.
